Manicotti

Manicotti

Being Italian has always meant pasta, but since my surgery, I do not eat macaroni anymore. I grab a meatball or have sauce over ricotta with lots of parmesan cheese. Once in a while I do make a pan of Manicotti but I use very thin eggy crepes called crespelle instead of pasta. They are easy to make and really delicious.

Serve this tender, fall-off-the-bone meat with sauteed Swiss chard or zucchini. It is very easy but the flavors are really deep and flavorful. Steak in the style of the pizzamaker.

Bariatric friendly food doesn't have to suck. We've taken the flavors of high carb, bread wrapped foods we ALL love and made new & just as tasty, versions that are good for you. Get creative, have fun... its not about the bread... it's the flavors in the filling.

I cannot think of a nicer Easter Dinner for two or four. This is a 30 minute meal that is an excellent choice for a holiday or special occasion meal. This plate of food could be served in a very fancy pants restaurant! The cauliflower is out of this world.

Not humble about this one. I make FANTASTIC meatloaf! Wednesday at my casa is often Meatloaf Night as the local Fresh Market has a weekly $2.99/pound fresh ground chuck deal. No bread crumbs as I have discovered that you do not need 'a binder'. My husbands favorite meal!

Yes, it does taste like lasagna! We have had this recipe on the website for many years and it is one of the most popular. Not a lot of ingredients but the flavors scream Italian. Warm. Fennel. Cheese. Tomato. Perfect.

Orange Chicken is a Chinese Restaurant Favorite that does not work after bariatric surgery as its both deep fried and loaded with sugar. Ours has the flavors you love, without the No No No!
